Brighten up your weekend with some classic slapstick DJ action.

In this cruel world, full of destruction, despair and celebrity divorces, there is nothing that can cheer us up more than the sight of a musician falling ar*e over t*t on stage mid-concert.

Enter Alex from The Chainsmokers to heal us all.


During the EDM duo's show at San Diego's KAABOO Festival, Alex was seemingly so startled by his own pyro display that he promptly collapsed, flying straight off his platform.

But writing about it just cannot do it justice. You need to see it.

Fortunately, the band tweeted it out so we can all share in this joyous moment.


Congratulations Alex! Along with the continued sales success of "Closer", you can now join the elite club of hilarious concert falls.

Although you still fall slightly short of Olly Murs.


RIP Olly.
